Kansas City Style Pork Back Ribs

(Image courtesy The Neely's - Food Network)

Another borrowed photo - sorry.  I am still so upset with myself for deleting so many photos off my camera.  I said it before.. it's heart breaking!!!  For the last two posts it hasn't been too big of a deal, as these were adapted recipes... but I had two posts for next week that were my own creations... THAT is the most upsetting!!  But alas, I guess there could be worse things that happened to me this week, right?  oh wait.. there just might be.. some of you may have noticed I haven't been commenting on your blogs much this week.. well, one more depressing thing - my internet connection is spotty.. if that.  I am having troubles even connecting to the internet, so don't think of me as rude, just know I will get back to commenting as soon as my issue is fixed... what a week, huh? :)

Anyway - these are ribs that I have made a couple of times and each time I've had a problem with the photo.. lol... this time, I said forget it.. I'll just politely borrow a photo and finally post this delicious recipe!!!

Kansas City Style Pork Back Ribs
Adapted from The Neely's, Food Network
Printable Recipe 
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon dry mustard
3/4 teaspoon cayenne
3/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon onion powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 rack pork back ribs
For the Sauce -
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 Tablespoon molasses
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons water

Mix together the first 8 ingredients until well combined.  Sprinkle and rub into both sides of the rib.  Cover in plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for 1 hour.

Meanwhile, to make the sauce, add all of the sauce ingredients into a small saucepan over medium heat.  Bring to a boil and immediately reduce heat to low (stirring occasionally).  Allow to simmer for 8-10 minutes; stirring occasionally so nothing burns.  Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Remove ribs from the refrigerator about 30-45 minutes before you are ready to cook them.  Preheat grill to 275-300 degree F and set up for indirect cooking.  Remove the ribs from the plastic wrap and wrap in foil (I cut the rack in half to make it easier and I pour just a tiny bit of beer in the foil wrap too for added moisture).  Place ribs over indirect heat and grill (turning occasionally) for 1 hour.  Carefully remove ribs from foil and place over direct heat.  Continue to grill 15-20 minutes over direct heat.  Remove from grill and allow to rest before digging in.  Enjoy!!

Oh Jenn... so sorry to hear about the photos. That sucks!

Jenn - just quit saying they are not your photos, we won't know the difference :-). I've never quite figured out the various BBQ areas - what makes a rib a Kansas City rib? The sauce?

Jenn S said...

From what I can gather, Larry, Kansas City style rubs use a lot of brown sugar, so they would be sweeter than say a Memphis rub... but I'm no expert, so if someone reads this and feels the need to tell me I'm full of shit, well.. go for it.. please educate me :)

So sorry you lost your photos, Jenn. Those ribs do look delicious. Hope your internet starts behaving itself. That gets so annoying, doesn' it! I think we need a new modem. Ours keeps cutting out - also annoying.

Pam said...

It's so frustrating! I am sorry about the photos & internet.

The ribs sound amazing and now I have a sudden craving for a big plate full of them.

Mmm ... this sounds like exactly what I want to be eating real soon! Sorry about your technical difficulties. I feel your pain!

I've gotten in a burned out on ribs phase right now. I got through that every few years and then get over it.

I just lost a ton of pictures last weekend for a cook and a drive that we had taken. I was sick about it, the disk just failed. Ugh.
